§ 43. Major PROCTER
asked the Minister of Transport whether he is in a position to report on the results of the experiments in the use of cotton-cloth for 862 road making; and, in view of the importance to Lancashire of discovering new uses for cotton, will he specify cotton-cloth as one of the materials to be employed in new road construction?
§ The MINISTER of TRANSPORT (Mr. Hore-Belisha)
Results of experiments in this country and abroad do not, according to present information, justify me in specifying cotton-cloth for use on British roads.
